Pure speculation

The Broncos are expected to be active in the free-agent market next month. A possible list of NFL free-agent quarterbacks who the Broncos might consider signing to back up Tim Tebow: Chris Redman, Shaun Hill, Chad Henne, Vince Young, David Carr, Kevin O'Connell and Josh Johnson. Elway has stated Tebow would be the team's starting quarterback entering 2012 training camp.

VY has got to be better than McNabb at this point.

When I'm looking at a backup to a young kid who needs to learn, I'm looking at the one with more experience, not necessarily the one who is better. McNabb has 100 games on Young. I'll take McNabb.

And realistically, the Broncos have to - at the very least - let Tebow play out his contract. He's earned the right to start in 2012, and if he shows improvement, in 2013 as well. If the Broncos are unsatisfied at that point they can let him go through FA.

If he really craps the bed this year, we might have a realistic shot at Barkley.

That said, if we just get massively strong on defense and build a great o-line, we very well might be able to put together a SB team with Tebow at the helm.

I would take VY as he is Tebow's brother from another mother. Plus if Elway has to teach Tebow he might as well teach Young as well.

Orton may be available. He was over 60% last season. I think our team would be better with that kind of production. Amiright spidtroller?

If I were Orton I would go back to Chicago, ride the pine and collect a check plus Cutler has gone down in the last 2 years.

David Garrard should be our #1 target for a backup QB. He's athletic, proven to be solid in this league, but is unlikely to get a real starting shot after sitting out all last season with an injury.

We then should get the best young QB we can with the required athleticism that would let them develop as Tebow's long term backup. I would wait for the draft on this, as I think Tannehill's foot injury might see him slide as other QBs climb the board, making him a steal in the late 2nd to 3rd rounds.

If we don't like what we can land in the draft then we instead sign someone like Kevin O'Connell or Josh Johnson, guys who have the athleticism to make some plays running the ball in a spread set up but likely can't go a full 16 doing it like Tebow can. Develop that guy to be Tebow's stop gap replacement if he's got to miss a game here or there down the road.

Regardless of what you do with that setup though I'd also like to see us grab Kellen Moore in the very late rounds or as a UDFA as an insurance policy against Tebow not being able to get it done. If Tebow regresses next year and its obvious we've got to move on Moore gives you a young in house option who can run a traditional pro style passing offense and has a high football IQ. You put him in a Gruden-esque short to intermediate passes West Coast offense and he could really tear some teams up.

Mike Lombardi said on the BS Report that the talk around the Senior Bowl was that the Redskins would sign Orton. Poor skins fans.

Garrard is slow and can't run the read-option.
